The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described allegations that it plans to use the military to rig the November 18 governorship election in Anambra state as baseless.
The APC national publicity secretary, Abdullahi Bolaji, told newsmen in Abuja on Thursday, November 9, that the party was confident and was working hard to ensure victory at the poll, The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Bolaji said all the contestants at the primaries were solidly behind the party’s candidate and that all hands were on the deck to ensure victory for the party.
“As the ruling party, we have won and have lost elections; in places where we lost, we did not use the military to rig the elections?
“Unless people have credible evidence, they should not make such allegations,” he said.
He also denied allegations that the party was suppressing members of opposition parties.

The APC spokesman said the party did not have power to arrest or interested in arresting people.
He said APC was only interested in winning elections and winning more followers.
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) on Tuesday, November 7, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that Anambra election is free and fair.
APGA said President Buhari must stop Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai; his Imo counterpart, Rochas Okorocha and ex-Abia governor, Orji Kalu, from attempting to rig the election.
According to a report, the party alleged that the APC chieftains have printed sensitive materials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ahead of the poll.
In a statement signed by Evang Chinedu Obigwe, the APGA national coordinator on media, the party said the election will determine whether Nigeria will remain one.
